My sister and I attended a Christmas program featuring the Ten Tenors. I think all seats are probably good because it is a small theater. It opened in 1930 so the architecture and decorations are wonderful. Go online to their website to see up-coming shows.

There are many venues to enjoy the Fox Theater. We viewed a movie in December just before Christmas and enjoyed the theater immensely. While my degree is in art I'd not seen art deco done with a southwest flavor. It is a beautifully restored theater in downtown Tucson. Look up their website and enjoy one of the events there and...

This was our second visit to the Fox. It is a classic and beautiful theater. The first time we sat way in the back. This time we sat close to the front. The acoustics were amazing in both places. We saw Travis Tripp, and while the theater is large, he said he felt like he was in our living room.... More

My lady & I are constantly amazed by this historic renovated theatre. The shows that are presented are always first rate and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly the seats are very comfortable and the slight lines are such that each seat gives an excellent view of the stage. Drinks ( both alcoholic and non) are available before and during... More

Enjoyed a jazz concert for the Tucson Jazz Festival. This is one of the great Fox Theaters around the country. Fabulous French Bistro next door for dinner before the concert

My husband and I love to see shows here. It's been beautifully renovated and the sound is amazing. I don't know the seating size, but it feels very cozy; not at all like the big stadiums. We've been lucky to see several great singers and even attended a fund-raiser movie or two. It's always a treat just to see the... More

This is a great place for a concert. We went to the Brian Setzer show last night and it was great. The theater is just the right size so that you feel like a part of it. Beer, Wine, and Mixed Drinks in the lobby. Great place!

Nice venue for live music (stay away from the area under the balcony). Seats are comfortable and reasonably spaced, the concessions are reasonably priced and carry a good variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic. The building is an art deco treasure that has been well restored at great cost. It's a really good place to see a concert and its... More

I have been in this theater twice and have enjoyed that the theater is small enough to see the stage from most seats. One can get drinks and popcorn before the show and there is a relaxed attitude while waiting to enter the theater. The staff is friendly and efficient. The acoustics are good and one can hear from the... More
